Bubbles at Jericho Street Fair

The bubbles were huge
and everybody loved them, both children
and adults.

The Hoad Monument was made in the style of an Eddystone Lighthouse, and restored thanks to a National Lottery grant last year.
Judith and me climbed up to see Hoad today - Easter Sunday.

It is the first time in 28 years of going to Ulverston that I have ever climbed right to the top. We were the last visitors of the day.

Ulverston - St George Day Pageant 2011

We are up in Ulverston in Cumbria for Easter and saw St George come into town.
A young damsel watching from a balcony was kidnapped and tied up by an evil baron.
All this happened while a jester was entertaining the crowds.
A few jokes later and two damsels were kidnapped. St George arrived to deal with the dragon.

and the evil baron got caught with his pants down. Audience participation was taken a little too far on this occasion
